MICHAEL Jackson’s maid claims the star’s bodyguards threatened to kill her if she ever spoke about what she witnessed at his Neverland Ranch.
Adrian McManus claims the King of Pop “fondled, kissed and petted” young boys that visited his bizarre ranch, but was too afraid to speak out at the time.

“They told me if I ever came up on TV that they could hire a hitman to take me out, slice my neck, wouldn’t ever find my body,” Ms McManus said.
McManus has opened up about her time working for the singer amid a series of explosive allegations sparked by a controversial documentary about the late musician.
Speaking on Australian news show Unmissable, the 56-year-old: “The first time I cleaned his bedroom I didn’t even know where to start.
“I saw a lot of fondling, hugging, petting, kissing.”
Recalling her relationship with Jackson, she said: “He told me I was excellent, you can be with me forever.
“There was a kind side to him… and yeah, there was a dark side. It really scared me, I was shocked because I knew it was going to happen again.”

When asked whether she’d ever contemplated raising the alarm with police she claims she was warned off.
“I was scared to say anything bad about Michael. I know the truth – I was there,” she said.
McManus’ claims came after further bombshell allegations she made about Jackson – telling Daily Mail TV there was “a lot of Vaseline around Neverland” and soiled underwear hidden in his bedroom.
She also alleged Jackson hid a series of VHS cassettes from cops prior to his death a decade ago, aged 50.
“I think they were of Michael with boys doing inappropriate things that had to be hidden, or they would have put him in jail,” she said. “I think they were sex tapes.”
McManus – one of just a handful of staff to have access to the singer’s bedroom, bathroom and secret chambers – has said she isn’t shocked at the claims made in the Leaving Neverland documentary that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and is due to air on Channel 4 in the first week of March.
In the film Wade Robson and James Safechuck say they were aged seven and 10 when the singer befriended them and their families.
Now in their 30s, they claim they were sexually abused by Michael Jackson.
Jackson always denied the allegations when he was alive.

Police raided his Neverland Ranch in California in 2003 while investigating claims he had molested a 13-year-old boy.
The case went to trial and Robson was a main witness for him. He said under oath that the singer never abused him and Jackson was acquitted of all charges in 2005.
